The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has ended the collation of results for the 2023 presidential election at the International Conference Centre in Abuja for the day.
Monday’s collation ended a few minutes past 10:00 pm and will be resuming by 11 am today.
The INEC National Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu adjoined the collation to enable the state collation officers for the presidential election (SCOPs) in the remaining states.
Already, results have been released for about 11 states with the top parties APC, LP, NNPP, and PDP sharing the wins.
The INEC Chairman who cautioned political parties to only draw their figures from INEC, also said the collation of presidential election results will be done at four levels — first at the 8,889 wards, then at the 774 local government areas, then the SCOPs at the 36 states, and the Federal Capital Territory will submit the votes per candidate in Abuja.
Elections were held at most of the 176,606 polling units in Nigeria as 87.2 million voters with Permanent Voter Cards voted for their preferred candidates.
